Cup and handle is a pattern on the chart that looks like a cup and handle. Using DDD as example, $52 is rim of cup. It pulled back about 1/3 of the depth of the cup then moved up above the rim, broke above the rim. Target of a C&H break out is:
Rim price + depth of cup
It takes time to recognize the patterns, keep practicing and you will like it.
There are so many TA books out there but I like Tony Oz book the most. He explains thugs about the market and patterns in an easy way to understand.
